Your presentation is a Netflix series

Your presentation is an event, just like a Netflix series premiere. Build some hype leading up to your presentation, get the anticipation and interest going. Give your audience something to participate in during the presentation. Then keep the conversation and activity going afterwards.”

More than a presentation (WordCamp Miami 2020)

I contributed a guest post to WordCamp Miami 2020. It’s part of a series for new WordCamp and WordPress meetup speakers.

Rather than focusing on the talk itself, I offered some suggestions for how speakers can make their presentation part of a larger conversation or initiative.

+ Check out this follow-up post from David Bisset, a compilation of tips and reminders for new speakers.

++ WordCamp Miami is always a blast. The next one is on February 28th. Early bird tickets are on sale until December 31st. Crossing my fingers I’ll be able to make it down again…!
